Williamsburg Memorial Park is a nonprofit, multi-denominational cemetery established in 1962. Our cemetery is built on the historic plantation of Benjamin Stoddert Ewell, the 16th president of The College of William & Mary and a colonel in the Confederate Army. We’re located just 15 minutes northwest of Colonial Williamsburg on 41 acres of beautifully manicured property, situated within a natural forest.
Upon arrival, a winding drive gently guides you from our discreet, wooded entranceway to a lush green open space featuring stately trees, manicured shrubs, and a bouquet of seasonal colors. At the center of our park, you’ll discover a towering marble statue of a majestic crane–the centerpiece of our cemetery and the inspiration behind our new logo. In the distance, you’ll see Ewell Hall, a magnificent plantation house built in 1848.
To meet the changing needs of our clients, Williamsburg Memorial Park is committed to ongoing improvements. In the past decade, we’ve added a 1,500 square-foot community mausoleum, 115 cremorials, improved family estate options, and a consecrated area for our Jewish families.
In the spring of 2013, we completed construction on a new 3,600-square-foot, state-of-the-art customer care center, shown at right. This new facility features easier access, a more comfortable environment, public restrooms, and the latest cemetery technology. This is where you'll meet with one of our Family Service Counselors to discuss your immediate or pre-planning needs.
But to truly appreciate our picturesque and peaceful park, we invite you to see it yourself. Call us today to schedule a private, no-obligation tour.
